    For those who don't know, J.P. Morgan Chase has been running the food stamp (SNAP) program. They make billions out of America's poor by soaking the taxpayers to act as a contractor.

    But Trump seems to be trying to kill their buzz:

    Trump Plans To Replace Food Stamps: Here’s How

    http://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/...ere-s-how.html

    The Trump administration has a proposal to replace some of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s (SNAP) cash benefits with boxes of physical food.

    The plan, outlined in the administration’s budget blueprint for fiscal year 2019, is being dubbed “America’s Harvest Box” by the Department of Agriculture. It would provide 16.4 million households, about 81% of current food stamp recipients, with boxes of non-perishable food items grown by U.S. farmers in place of some of their SNAP aid. The government’s proposed program would apply to households that receive more than $90 in food stamp benefits.

    Items that could be included in a government-issued food box are grains, peanut butter, canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, juice and other shelf-stable products, according to the Department of Agriculture. The government would decide what to include based on nutrition guidelines utilized for other, existing programs, such as the Emergency Food Assistance Program, and the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.

    ...Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney compared the proposal to a “Blue Apron-type program,” which is a meal kit delivery service that provides members with ingredients to cook their own meals.

    Blue Apron declined to comment on the government’s program.

    America’s Harvest Box could save the country $129.2 billion over the course of a decade, the government said, since it can leverage its buying power to procure better deals with sellers. It also falls in line with the president’s promise to promote a “Buy American, Hire American” agenda...
    No more McRibs at taxpayer expense.

    This could put to work thousands of out of work people to assemble, pack and distribute the food. Of course the left will hate it.
    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.

    Sen them C rations or what ever the military eats now. If it is good enough for our nations finest it is more than adequate for those on the dole.

    The left claims it won't work but half the Indian's in Oklahoma get commodities this way and have for a 100 years.

    A lot of government jobs there. Unless it gets outsourced, which may cost more.

    I certainly wouldn't complain if I were given a free food box!
